Comedian Russell Brand will write a new book, this one detailing his distrust of government.

Brand has previously written two memoirs, “My Booky Wook,” which was released in 2007, and “Booky Wook 2: This Time It’s Personal,” which came out in 2010.

His new book will be released by British publisher Century and will “act as a provocation, urging its readers to discard apathy and challenge the status quo,” according to Century publishing director Ben Dunn.

“People keep asking me how The Revolution will work,” Brand said in a statement. “'We all want to bring down the government and establish a personal and global utopia but how?’ they ask. Well in this book, I'm going to explain it. Having accrued the greatest wisdom known to man (by conducting interviews, watching DVDs, reading books, thinking and looking at the sky) I am now able to put in a simple, accessible book(y wook) the solution to internal and external turmoil. And about time too.”

Century will publish the book in October, but it has not yet been announced whether an American publisher will release it.
